Showcases the evolving interpretation of project management by providing practical information useful to project managers from all disciplines. Discussion topics will include: integration, scope, time, cost, quality, human resource management, communication, risk, and procurement management. This course is one of the Project Management series that includes CAS 220, MSD 279, and CIS 245. Project management is a broad term that can include many areas of a business.
Project Management has become an academic discipline, a management function, a way of thinking, and a language with its own jargon. Project managers have become the chameleons of companies. The position requires managers to have the ability to juggle “hard” and “soft” skills as they orchestrate projects in departmental communities. Furthermore, PM’s are being requested to interface with internal and external clients to manage change, conflict, and motivation for project acceptance. This course will blend theoretical concepts, industry tested instruction, and practical application to ready students for project management positions.
